7 Very IMPORTANT Things I’ve Learned in 4 Months of Blogging!

Image result for 7 things I've learned about blogging

I’ve been blogging for 4 months now and I’ve learned quite a bit in my journey so far !! Just thought I’d share what I felt was most important and could possibly help out some other newcomers like myself or anyone for that matter !! ❀

Consistency

Whether you post everyday or once a month.. make sure you’re consistent about it. Otherwise, you’ll lose your readers attention, have slow traffic and not very many views. That’s not good, especially if you’re trying to monetize your blog. Lack of consistency brings lack of interest. You can’t expect to succeed if you only put in work on the days you feel like it and that goes for anything in life. Consistent actions will always create consistent results! πŸ™‚

Interaction

Interaction is a BIG deal !! If you want other people to support you then you have to support other people, especially in the world of blogging! There are benefits in supporting other bloggers. 1.) It means you will be able to further promote your website and they, in return, can further promote theirs. 2.) You can learn a lot from other bloggers! Whether it’s blogging tips, personal inspiration or just for pure entertainment – You can learn a lot! Me personally, I am inspired by most of the blogs I’ve visited and I really enjoy them! Reading positive, uplifting, encouraging blogs is just another way of feeding myself constant positivity. One of personal self care shenanigans.

Love Your Existing Readers

Love the readers you already have. A lot of bloggers get so obsessed with finding new readers to the point where they ignore the ones they already have. YES – do try to find new readers but spend time each day showing your current readers some love and that you value them too. You’ll find that they will help you grow your blog too!

Patience

If you’re trying to monetize your blog, then plan to invest in it for a long time before you see a return. Even though good money can be made in blogging, it still takes time. This is not a “get rich quick” scheme.

Writing Catchy Headlines and Titles

Oh my gosh !! This one is so I M P O R T A N T!! No matter how great your content is, it won’t matter unless you have an amazing headline or title! People have a split second to decide on if they should click on your post and in most cases, your headline will make them decide.

Be Yourself

You don’t have to be too professional or use “big words” impress other people. Just simply be you! You’ll find blogging more enjoyable that way and you’ll also be able to just flow in your writing instead of forcing and stressing.

Length of Your Posts

Working out the best length for your blog can be tricky. Really, it doesn’t matter how long you write your blog posts; it’s just up to whatever you feel comfortable with but I will say this .. the shorter, the better. I’m not trying to be ugly when I say this but a lot of people don’t care too much to sit and read dramatically long posts. I personally feel like sometimes the longer they are, the lesser of a reaction you’ll get from your readers. When I first started blogging, I had some SUPER LONG POSTS and I still got quite a few likes along with some traffic but it’s nothing compared to the views and traffic I get with more shorter written blogs.

Thanks for visiting and reading!! Your company here is always appreciated!!😊😊😊

    • Oh yes ma’am! Its definitely a struggle! I’ve gotten in the swing of trying to keep myself ahead with my posts. It’s just easier that way for me. With my boys being in baseball , it’s even more challenging for me to find the time between the practices and games

  1. This is awesome, Jessica! Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with us! ❀ I’m glad that you pointed out how important it is to value old readers just as much as new ones – it makes me so sad when people whose blogs I’ve been reading for months don’t read my blog anymore because they’d rather find new people! :/ and I have to say that shorter posts are better, haha – they’re more likely to capture readers’ attention! And if you have a lot to write about on a topic, simply break up the post into a series! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much!!
      It’s so easy to forget about your older readers or those that started following you from the beginning when you’re obsessed with constantly gaining new followers and etc. I on the other hand VALUE mine !! My blog wouldn’t have made it this far without so many of you guys!!❀❀ Thanks for reading!! I always enjoy your company and comments!!😘

  2. These are great points, Jessica. I must say, especially about the length of the post. I follow so many other bloggers, that I just can’t read lengthy post, or else I will never get to read the other posts. I believe in reading the posts of the blogs I follow. Sometimes, I can’t get to everyone, but I do try.

    • Thank you and I agree! Most of the time , I just scheme through the super long ones. If it’s a post that speaks to a personal part of me then I’ll take my time and read it but other than that.. I scheme through it!

      Thank you for reading !!❀
